deep fried / vegetarian

Hesaru kaalu vade

kitchen moong

Hesarukaalu vade

1 cup soaked greengram (hesaru kaalu)

2 onions

4-5 green chillies

1 cup chopped coriander leaves.


1”cinnamon stick

1 tsp. Jeera seeds

Pinch of ajwain

Salt to taste

Oil to deep fry


Coarsely grind the greengram, with no water

Now add other ingredients and grind with minimum water.

Heat oil in a wok, and drop spoonful of ground batter fry to golden brown.

Serve hot with coconut chutney, tamarind chutney or sauce.

Since this is a snack, if I want to serve this for breakfast then I add a little more water and make it dropping consistency and spread it on a skillet. As a filling I add mashed cottage cheese with rock salt, or chaat masala.
